    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Chevron for less than a year

    Pros

    The culture at Chevron is on many pamphlets, but safety is a conversation that employees have on the regular, in and out of their projects. They give you an opportunity to shine and take on more or different responsibilities.

    Cons

    Natural gas is not doing so well in the northeast coast because New York will not allow pipelines to be under their ground. Much of the activism against fracturing has successfully regulated Chevron, who will meet or exceed expectations, but it also means that business is slow. While the community I met was talented and young, the business need sent them all to new locations.

  7. "Internship"

    "Limited Career Growth and My Way or the Highway Supervisors"

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Chevron full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent moving package if you are willing to completely uproot your home life, kids and spouse to move for more money. Good base salaries if you are willing to forget all ethics and be a "my way or the highway" supervisor or employee.

    Cons

    The company advertises multiple career opportunities but then management or supervisors limit career growth for their departments and direct reports. Chevron brands themselves as a diverse and equal opportunity employer, yet supervisors do not preach what they say and will limit their employees in order to keep good people in their team instead of letting them excel in other job opportunities within the company. Many supervisors have a control issue. If you say one thing, they will make you do the opposite just so they can be right. I have heard from peers that the HR hotline number is useless, only creates more trouble and should never be used even though the company promotes the hotline. Inflexible work schedule. The company promotes work life balance yet the decisions rest in your supervisor's personnel interpretation of work life balance. No room for working remotely and your vacation plans are expected to be changed per the supervisor's request for internal fictitious corporate deadlines.
